Riassunto: Morengaru, a strong young hunter, has been cast out by both his mother?s people, the Kikuyu, and his father?s people, the Masai. Every day he misses human companionship, and soon he feels as though he?s becoming more like the animals around him. When Morengaru has the chance to belong again, he seizes the opportunity. Then he faces the greatest challenge of his life: living among the baboons, still clinging to his humanity, hoping someday to return to his people.
Dal retro di copertina:
"This remarkable novel deserves to be placed alongside such classic looks at the human condition as Lord of the Flies and A Separate Peace, and recommended to readers who loved Hatchet." ? School Library Journal, Starred
"This beautifully told, often gory tale is impressive in the themes it tackles, and the surprisingly realistic way in which those themes are explored. The descriptions of the unforgiving world in which Morengaru lives are unforgettable." ? Kirkus, Starred
